Winchester's Tudor and Stuart era is revealed in this beautifully refurbished listed monument, the last of the main medieval gates into the city.

A debtors' prison for 150 years, visitors can see the with walls covered in prisoners' graffiti. The museum houses a unique collection of weights and measures and a Tudor ceiling from Winchester College.

A great attraction for children where they can try on a suit of armour or make an authentic brass rubbing (small fee charged).

This Grade-1 listed building is not wheelchair accessible due to its age, and there is a considerably steep staircase from the street entrance.

Guide dogs are permitted and there is a hearing loop. For those with visual impairments there is a 'touch and hear' information point.
